Flame Leaf Sumac - Rhus copallinum
Flame Leaf Sumac is justly named for the vivid shades of red and orange leaves seen during the fall season. Among the beautiful fall foliage, crimson red berries grow in clusters throughout the tree, further adding to the vibrant color pattern. The fruit is specific to the fall season and attracts various wildlife, especially deer and birds. These berries can also be used to make a lemony flavored tea that is rich in vitamin C. The Flame Leaf Sumac is a special plant because it changes with the seasons, almost like having two different plants. During the summer, the plant exchanges its bright fall color pattern for tiny, delicate green-yellow flowers. These flowers sprinkled in between the plant's fern-like leaves add texture and appeal to any landscape.
In addition to being appealing to the eyes, the Flame Leaf Sumac is also easy to care for. It is generally pest and disease free and adapts to almost any environment. Often found areas of Texas and New Mexico, this low maintenance plant can withstand variable weather conditions and is extremely heat and drought tolerant. The plant thrives in full sun or partial shade. It is also capable of growing in any well-drained soil, but is very adaptable and can grow successfully in rocky or clay soils. This fast growing plant typically grows between 10 to 20 feet high, but some trees can grow as high as 30 feet! If a shorter, shrub-like plant is desired, it is best pruned during the winter. Even though this plant is not considered invasive, it does colonize quickly and should be planted in an area with ample space. The Flame Leaf Sumac will certainly catch eyes because of its vibrant colors, which makes it a perfect addition to any lawn.
